Monoliths! Remember those? Yeah, over the last few weeks they were popping up around the world. Strange. However, the world moved on and now we are the last ones left, to kick this dead horse for a bit more comedy. ‘Tis the ‘Shop Contest way.

Our winning image this week comes from... Kerning! It’s a repeat victory. Someone update the ‘Shop Contest wiki, which I assume exists.

Y’know, I’m so over monoliths. They are so late November. I mean, look at this Wikipedia list of all the monoliths. That’s too many. I’m bored of them now. Someone needs to start installing pyramids around the world. That could be fun. Someone get on that. (And someone get on the wiki too.)

Anyway, you can check out the original post to see all the entries, but here are some of my favorites.

No award for MonoArtan. instead, I just want to point out how wild this image is. If you locked me in a room for 20 years and made me come up with a new photo using this monolith each day, I would still not make this. I love it!
